Regional Influence: Sprat


The Free Land of Grue is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 235 million Grueans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 56.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Gruean economy, worth 18.4 trillion Grue Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 78,166 Grue Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

More than one company makes the board game Monopoly, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, Grueans submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card, and almost every singles' party has a clergy and courtesans theme. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grue's national animal is the Manatee, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Grue is ranked 162,349th in the world and 8,264th in The North Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.61 Kickbacks Per Hour.
